Established in 2001, Young Singers of Greater Westfield brings together children from grades 2-12, who rehearse weekly to develop vocal skills, music literacy, and a beautiful choral sound. They perform 2 major concerts each season and participate in choral festivals throughout the year. They also do outreach performances for school programs, senior citizens, civic organizations, and fundraisers for people in need. These activities engender focus, attentiveness and a supportive and caring musical community.
Moriah is a chamber group of eleven girls who are selected from the larger group of Young Singers. They rehearse once a week.
